Review Courtesy of April Hollingworth Okay so just to pre-warn you, the chocolates in this book sound delicious so don't be surprised if you're left wanting some! Then you have Chloe who is fabulous, her family who are so real it's scary, and the unknown hunk who enters her shop. You do find out his name but I'll leave that to your reading. I really liked how this story unraveled, how a child hood wish grew and without knowing it became a deep desire, even though Chloe never thought her three wishes could possibly come true. A wonderfully beautiful, fun and sweet story. It'll make you feel both hungry for chocolates and your own three wishes. The Review: Valentine’s Day is chocolatier Chloe San Valentino’s favorite day of the year. Not only is it the busiest day in her candy shop, Caramelle de Chloe, but it’s also her birthday. Chloe’s got a birthday wish list for the perfect man she pulls out every year: he’d fall in love with her in a heartbeat, he’d be someone who cares about people, and he’d have one blue eye and one green eye, just like her. So far, Chloe’s fantasy man hasn’t materialized, despite the matchmaking efforts of her big, close-knit Italian family. But this year for her big 3-0 birthday, she just might get her three wishes.

Peggy Jaeger’s 3 Wishes is a cute little story. Written in first person, from the point of view of Chloe San Valentino, the story reads like a cozy mystery with the way the author depicts the characters and describes events. Reading this story, I was reminded of past stories written by Sharon Kleve, but without all the humor. Chloe and her hero Matt were likeable and ultimately their journey to a happily-ever-after was cute. However, I found the story to be extremely predictable, thus taking away from my enjoyment. **Received a copy of the book courtesy of Blog Tour Promoter for an honest and unbiased opinion.** Rating: 2.5

So I had to double check the cover of this one when I noticed the two different colored eyes. When I read the blurb, I realized that this was deliberate, as it's a main part of the character and is on her "wish" list for the perfect man. The list and how it is described in the first chapter brought to mind the scene from Practical Magic, where young Sally is casting her true love spell. Which seems a bit odd since Chloe and her big Italian family are actually devout Catholics, but it worked with the wishes theme. Chloe was an interesting character, with her February 14th birthday, chocolate shop and crazy big family. As with any big boisterous family, there is plenty of drama and this story was no different. This story basically tells the meeting and initial relationship of Chloe and Matteo, so it is a clean romance. A lovely epilogue nicely wraps up everything and gives us an update on what happened in the interim. I liked the way Chloe handled things during their courtship. She stood up for herself and stayed true to herself. I enjoyed this book and gave it 3 stars. Thanks to Netgalley and Wild Rose Press for the opportunity to read and review the book.

Just as sweet as the chocolates that Chloe makes, I love this little story of love at first sight. You are there for the meet-cute and then the bumpy road as they move to a happy ending. I was rooting for Chloe and her fantasy man every step of the way. The misunderstanding between them could have been easily resolved with just a simple question or two but it would have meant that we didn’t get the fun of the story – one that had me smiling from start to finish.

3 Wishes is a very quick read by author Peggy Jaeger. It is the love story between Chloe San Valentino, a chocolatier, and Matt D'Amore, an emergency room doctor. They meet for the first time in Chloe's candy store, where Matt is buying chocolates and caramels for the women in his family. Both Chloe and Matt have one green eye and one blue eye, and it is at that moment when they both look into each other's eyes, that they fall in love. Chloe and her Italian family are loud, somewhat boisterous and loving. They stick together like glue through think and thin, which makes for some very funny moments. Overall, this is a cute read with a few twists and turns that keep it interesting. Complimentary copy provided by the publisher via NetGalley.

⭐ ⭐ Provided by Netgalley in Exchange for an Honest Review ⭐ ⭐ Judging a Book by it's Cover: Cute, cartoon-y cover with a Valentine theme. Synopsis sounds light and fun. Looking Deeper: As a teen, Chloe makes 3 wishes on a candy conversation heart detailing what she wants in the man she plans to spend her life with. It's not until the approach of her 30th birthday that it appears that they may come true. She owns her own candies' shop. He stops in late one night to buy goodies for a gal. Though there is some big Italian drama and an even bigger misunderstanding, they manage to find their HEA in this cute Valentine's Day themed short story. The lead and secondary characters are all likeable. Their interaction is dynamic and entertaining. The plot is not as deep or involved due to length, but does a great job with the short word count it was given and flows well. Predictability was low, conclusion was solid. Overall, a light and fun SUPER QUICK lunch-hour sized romance. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Rating: 3.25 [PG-13] ~ Score: 4.3 ~ Stars: 4 -------------------------------------------------------------------------
